Ophthalmological Society of the Netherlands


The NOG (Nederlands Oogheelkundig Gezelschap) was founded in 1892 when a group of like-minded ophthalmologists met at the Maashotel in Rotterdam to discuss the latest developments in their profession. The aim of the society was, and still is, the scientific and social support of ophthalmology in the Netherlands. The father of Dutch ophthalmology was Franciscus Cornelis Donders who was a brilliant ophthalmologist and scientist. He was a close friend of Albrecht von Graefe from Germany. Together, Donders and Herman Snellen formed, in Utrecht, the "epicentre" of Dutch Ophthalmology. Three years after the death of Donders the NOG was founded.
